    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Hi Kay and welcome here,

    I think it would be a good idea to start by seeing a doctor and contacting your insurance to find out what is available to you there in Florida.

    But beyond that and beyond posting here, I really encourage you to pursue therapy. We often eat (or not eat or drink, etc.) because of underlying issues in our lives and those can take time and work to sort through.

    You need and deserve some real support.

    Coming here was a good first step. You are not alone. Now it's time to take a few more steps.

    And if you ever need help keeping yourself safe, please call a crisis line .
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    You do have someone to turn to...this board...and that was your first step. You aren't a mess...you are simply human. We all have our ways of dealing with issues and I think more often than not (although some may not agree) they are not generally healthy. I myself am a former cocaine user, bulimic, and self harmer...but I am learning that I am not alone. I think that you should google something to the effect of 'binge eating therapy in Florida' and go from there. Anyone and everyone on this board will support you in what you do. I know that I'm behind you in this. I'm trying to get healthy as well. Please keep us updated on your status. You'll be amazed at how many stories you read that are similar to your own. You have the strength, Kay. And through me, you have the support. Take care of yourself.
